As 3D-printer prints the objects themselves more?
Despite the increased availability of 3D-printing technology , there are factors that limit the flight of your imagination. Creative freedom constrain the size of 3D-printers. The apparatus is not able to physically print object exceeds its size. On this basis for 3D-printing, for example, the chair you will need a printer the size of a chair. However, U.S. researchers have found a solution to this problem.
Two scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a new method for 3D-printing. Hyperform system involves translating the picture in two-dimensional space and its subsequent printing a long thin chain. Then you can just lay down of printed material desired object, almost like origami.
Using technology Hyperform, the researchers collected a chandelier at eight times the size of the printer, with which it was printed. Length restrictions exists – 3D-printed web has a length equal to the height-storey building.
According to the guys, the shapes of the chain is intuitive – the material can be folded in a given direction. No other way out.
For example, IKEA furniture comes with instructions for assembly. In our case, the instruction is built into the circuit. She knows exactly the sequence of actions, – explains Marcelo Coelho from MIT.
If this method requires the participation of a person in the assembly, then the other pieces designed in the same university, when submerged in water alone take them to a predetermined shape .
Printer NSTRMNT, in turn, is able to adjust the 3D-printed objects .
Solar flare back a little more, and our earth is simply evaporate
